The Nashville Predators are coming off a strong week, and they’ve done some of their best recent work on the road. The Arizona Coyotes are profitable on the year because they can scratch out a win or two in the underdog spot, but their defensive effort makes them hard to trust against good teams. Give me the Preds and the PL for max betting value.
